II. Vision Screening Protocol
The Vision screening protocol includes:
Vision screening begins at birth, with specific components introduced over time.
While the Parent Questionnaire, completed by caregivers prior to their EI Evaluation, and in-person meetings for the assessment are preferred, telehealth and phone calls are also viable.
III. Vision Screening Training
Each member of the EI Evaluation teams must complete three vision screening training modules provided by A Shared Vision.
Total time: 2.5 to 3.5 hours

V. Vision Screening Scenarios
Each scenario includes a list of the PDFs to download and use during the assessment meeting. Scenarios also describe the steps to conduct the vision screening, including documenting next steps for the caregivers. The order of the steps is dependent upon the modality of the assessment meeting. Specifically, objective testing should be completed during in-person meetings. However, if the meeting is conducted via telehealth, objective testing should be completed at a later date when an in-person meeting is possible.
